Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2016


U.S stocks slumped early in the quarter, but rebounded after the U.S. election.

The Fund underperformed its primary benchmark.

We believe the U.S. economic outlook has improved. We’ve made a few changes at the margins to reflect the improved economic landscape, but the bulk of our portfolio remains invested in companies tied to enduring secular growth themes that we believe will push forward regardless of the economic backdrop.
